Esteban Ocon may have been left without a seat for 2019 but he’s still on the books of Mercedes and he’s revealed his plans for the upcoming season.
Racing Point Force India
Esteban Ocon is a French Formula 1 driver currently drives for Force India. The Frenchman made a big impression, especially in Formula 3, by taking the title over the likes of Max Verstappen. During the Grand Prix of Belgium in 2016, Ocon made his Formula 1 debut for the Manor Racing team. Mercedes has included the talent from Évreux in their development program, and the German team has loaned Ocon out to Force India. The Frenchman is a driver to keep an eye on, but he won’t be in F1 in 2019 as his seat will be taken by Lance Stroll, son of the team’s new owner Lawrence.
